How to grow Chili pepper 'Ladybug'

  • Full Sun

  • Medium

Try to plant in a location that enjoys full sun and remember to water moderately. Keep in mind when planting that Ladybug is thought of as half hardy, so it will need cloching or fleece protection when the temperature dips. Ladybug requires a loamy and sandy soil with a ph of 7.0 - 8.5 - it grows best in neutral soil to weakly alkaline soil.

Growing Ladybug from seed

Look to ensure a distance 1.95 inches (5.0 cm) between seeds when sowing - bury at a depth of at least 0.2 inches (0.5 cm) deep. Soil temperature should be kept higher than 18°C / 64°F to ensure good germination.

By our calculations, you should look at sowing Ladybug about 38 days before your last frost date.

Transplanting Ladybug

Ensure that temperatures are mild and all chance of frost has passed before planting out, as Ladybug is a half hardy plant.
